Great looking Bike, looks very familar except for color...,,,,,,Give the backrest a chance. Now thatI am used to mine I would not want to give it up, and 2 bolts is no big deal if I want it off for some reason... It came with highway boards,, I took them off felt like I was doing the splits.....it is all up to the indivduals comfort...THANKS GUYS!! Im thinking of loosing the driver backrest though as it feels like it is pushing me forward even when it is almost not even touching me. BUT i'll give it few hundred more miles to tell for sure. The pic really does not do it justice either. There is only one small scratch on the front fender. When it is clean and waxed ti does look like a new one.
Get some kind of seat other than the stock one,,,I could not stay in the saddle too long with it , my spine would go numb... I got a Corbin and I love it, I take the old ROHO Airhawk cushion for extra long rides,,,I like it better than the Gel cushions, It should be comfortable at over $100 for a new one....:shock:hey rcmatt007,
get atouring seat for taller riders, I'm 6'2 and sure, the 1200 has a cramped riding position, but I bit the bullet and bought a Hartco seat for 6'-6'6 ridersand now the bike rides like it should have stock. Like sitting in an armchair,and I'm sure your wife would loveit
